Ciro Galindo

When the documentary filmmaker Miguel Salazar was a young university student, he met Ciro Galindo, a peasant from Natagaima, a town located in the majestic region of Tolima, Colombia. Salazar met him during an exploratory tour. Ciro assigned him one of his sons to be his guide in the zone, but soon after Salazar had to inform Ciro how his son had disappeared when falling into a high, profound and dark waterfall. Thus began a deep friendship and a story that Salazar followed step by step, until finally he decided to register this dramatic account of the life of Ciro Galindo, who for 65 years, since he was a kid, lived affected by poverty and violence from landowners, emerald miners, the guerrillas and finally the lethal alliance between the State and the paramilitaries. Ciro found himself displaced and homeless, with his family decimated, surrounded by misery and desolation. But he never gave up. Up to this day, Ciro is still active to help his people to live with dignity. After a war that has lasted for decades, this is the drama of thousands of families in Colombia today, represented by a brave survivor whose motor was always the hope of finding peace and happiness. Winner of the Best Documentary Award at 2018 La Habana Film Festival.
